Many years have passed since Guillermo del Toro announced his interest in producing an animation based on the character of Pinocchio;
An animation that was first talked about more than a decade ago and will eventually be produced with the help of Netflix after a long time and will be shown next year.
Evan McGregor will be one of the voice actors in this animation, and it has recently been revealed that this Scottish actor has spoken instead of Jiminy Cricket.
Jimmy Cricket is one of the famous characters in the book “The Adventures of Pinocchio” by Carlo Claudio, produced in 1883, who accompanies Pinocchio in the adventures of this wooden boy in the form of a talking cricket.
We have seen this character in various forms in movies and television to date, and the most famous image is related to the 1940 Walt Disney Pinocchio animation, and this time we are going to accompany this character with a different appearance, and Ivan McGregor, who plays Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars movies will be his voice.
It was late September of this year that Walt Disney Company began initial talks with Robert Zamkis, director of acclaimed films such as the Back to the Future trilogy, Forrest Gump, and Cast Away, directed by Pinocchio. Zamkis has officially started directing and writing the script for this live-action film.
According to Deadline, the production of Pinocchio will most likely begin later this year. We have to wait for the next news.
